So do most of you in recovery wear the compression stockings? The girl measured them but they are way too long. Can't cut them or they will unravel. I wore them a week then took 2 days off because all the excess I have to fold ovor at the top, very uncomfortable. Today my husband helped me put them on again and I left all the extra at the bottom of my foot hanging off the foot. So as not to slip I placed the extra onto the top of my foot and put the slippers from the hospital with grips on my feet, which I hadn't been using. This is the most comfortable way so far. Anybody ditch them after 1 week? One of the nurses on here did, but she was walking a lot. I'm walking but I also sit and relax more than I walk.
